Jamie Lee Curtis Comes With A Hefty Price For Charity To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Wow, wouldn’t it be cool if Dancing With The Stars could get Jamie Lee Curtis to dance? She wants a hefty price though which she’d give to charity. So, I doubt it will happen, do you? Also, check out her advise for the show in the last paragraph from E News below. I’d be all for it, would you?

“Never in a million years,” Curtis told us at Global Green’s 15th Annual Millennium Awards in Santa Monica. “I’ll tell you how I would do Dancing With the Stars. If they gave me a million dollars to give to charity…I would only do it if there was a big charity component. ”

But is she even a good dancer?

“Not like Jennifer Grey, I’m not,” laughed Curtis, who has admitted to previously turning down an offer to be on the show.

While we won’t be holding our breath for Curtis to make her Dancing debut anytime soon, she does have some interesting advice for the show’s ABC execs.

“They’ve just done 12 seasons, I think they should now take all the twelve winners and do a season,” she said. “They should do a Dancing All-Stars where they bring back everyone who won and make sure that they are not paired with any of the same people they were paired with originally.”

Heidi’s Note: Heh….since the show has been on 12 seasons and has been won only by Derek (3), Mark (2), Julianne (2), Cheryl (2), Kym (2) and Alec (1) there isn’t much choice for most of them to dance with someone they haven’t danced with before. :-) But other than that, there are a TON of reasons why it would be very hard, not the least of which is height, gender and personality. Other than that – great idea!! I like me and Derek’s idea better – a season with all dancers who have experience similar to Nicole, Mya, Sabrina, Mel B, etc.

Dancing with the Stars 2011 – For Your Consideration…

It’s almost that time of year, folks – Emmy Nominations. In case anyone was wondering if DWTS was serious about wanting an Emmy (any Emmy) at this point, you can rest assured they are serious enough to pay for ads in Hollywood Reporter. :-) How do I know? I’m a subscriber and check out this screen cap of an email I just got:

I think it’s WAY past time for the show and Tom Bergeron to win the damn thing already. And don’t get me started on Derek as groomsman never the groom. :-) Yes, blah blah blah, it’s wonderful to be nominated – but I want them all to WIN. :-)

Anyway, we’ve been throwing lots of questions at you guys in this hiatus thus far so here’s another one: What dances from Seasons 11 and 12 do YOU think should be nominated for choreography?? Don’t forget the pro dances, since those stand a much better chance for a nomination than a celeb partner dance. Why do I say that? Well, it’s a choreography nomination, but I think we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t think that execution counts. Oh, and you CAN’T include the last….probably 2 weeks of Season 12. I haven’t looked at the rules for this season, but the DVD submission date last time eliminated the last 2 or 3 weeks of Season 10 from eligibility.

What do I think?? Well, if I recall, Louis and Maks did the lion’s share of the pro dances which increases their odds. UNFORTUNATELY, I think it would be very difficult to get a nomination for a dance done with a musical act, which knocks their odds right back down again. I also think it would be tough for Mark and Val to get one because more than half of their challenge thing was non-dancing. Derek? Well, he didn’t do the choreo for any pro dances and was only on Season 11 – that leaves his dances with Jennifer. Since he’s been nominated a good bit recently, I think the odds of, say, his Argentine Tango or second Paso with Jennifer might might be okay. But the odds are slimmer than usual simply because there’s only one season to choose from. Maks might have a shot with Brandy, Mark might have a shot with Chelsea (and really, wasn’t that the whole entire point of the Wizard Waltz?)…can YOU think of any other dances that are really, truly Emmy-worthy?? Be honest now. What you also have to consider is “So You Think You Can Dance” – that show, along with some of the award shows, tends to take the lion’s share of the nominations and more often than not, the win. Why? Well, all the dancers are trained and it’s ALL dancing – no musical acts with dance accompanying. Plus, there are no rules on SYTYCD – that makes a HUGE difference when it comes to choreography. For that reason, odds are that DWTS will be limited to ONE nomination for choreo. Who will it be? Or will they be shut out entirely?? What do you think??

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff And Petra Murgatroyd Do Regard Magazine June 2011

Dance fans, you’ll want to see the June issue of Regard Magazine. They do an amazing spread on Karina Smirnoff where she is modeling designs by Dina Bar-El. That’s not all! Dancing With The Stars Troupe dancer, Peta Murgatroyd is also in the June edition of Regard Magazine modeling Che` Swimwear. You can view the whole edition of this month’s issue of Regard Magazine >>>>HERE . They reallly did these dancers up right in my opinion. They look stunning to say the least! Below is a teaser of Peta’s shoot that she posted at her twitter about a month ago. But, this picture doesn’t even compare to her spread at the link.

Paris Hilton Has Turned Down Dancing With The Stars??

The Celebrity Cafe is reporting Paris Hilton has turned down an offer to dance on Dancing With The Stars and Celebrity Apprentice. Check out her reason below for how there are people she doesn’t want to be associated with. Geez, is there an ego there much? :?

“I’ve been approached every season by both of those shows but I would never do them,” Hilton said to the Windy City Times. “I like doing my own show. I wouldn’t want to be with a bunch of other people on a show who I don’t know.”

What about your BFF show? You didn’t know those people, either. We’re calling your bluff, Hilton!

Some of the people on those shows I really wouldn’t want to be associated with. But, I love Donald Trump. He’s been a great family friend of mine for a long time so I love his show. But the dancing show I wouldn’t ever do,” she explained.

Are you sure it’s not just because of your two left feet, Paris?

I’m betting she can’t dance too! Sad because I would have been in favor of seeing her on the show, but, not with an attitude like that??

Heidi: “People she wouldn’t want to associate with” but she loves Donald Trump? It’s confirmed she’s a moron, then. I’m very curious about who she wouldn’t want to associate with. People with TALENT? People who can dance? People who actually WORK for a living? Someone clue me in. Me thinks Ms. Bimbo is terrified she’d be the first one voted off, hence blowing her OWN sense of self worth to smithereens. :-) Or maybe she just realizes that she would no longer be the prettiest, hottest or most popular girl in the room. Far from it, most likely.

Pure DWTS End-of-Season Awards – Season 12

We know you all love the comedy of the Cheesecake Awards, but we here at PureDWTS do know how to be serious, as well :-) So it’s time to vote in our end-of-season awards – we started this last year as a way to look back at the season and see what the bests and worsts were, and see how our readers really felt about the season as a whole.

The voting categories are below – please vote on each one.  We will reveal the results in a series of posts in the upcoming weeks, as well as our commentary on the results.  Vote away and enjoy!!!

NOTE: There is an “other” box, if you really & truly don’t agree with any of the options listed for a particular category. We did our best to compile a list of good nominees for each category, but not everyone is going to agree. C’est la vie.  So if you want to vote “other” – simply click on that option and type in your answer.  However, a word of caution – if I cannot understand what you typed, I won’t count it in the vote totals.  I’m afraid some went a little crazy with the “other” box last season, and I was left to muddle through some badly misspelled, grammatically confusing, and downright incoherent answers…as well as answers that were already listed as nominees.  *facepalm* So for the sake of my sanity, kids, please – at least try to spell things correctly, and make sure the thing you are voting for isn’t already listed a nominee ;-)
